Twenty-five years ago, Goodwill Houston made the decision to no longer provide donation pick-up services. To make donating as easy and convenient as possible, we now have more than 100 locations across the Greater Houston area where you can drop-off your gently used clothing and household items – and help create job opportunities in our local community. (Find your nearest Donation Center)
We recently learned that there are organizations promoting themselves as being affiliated with Goodwill and claiming to pick up donations on our behalf. As valued supporters of Goodwill, we want to help you avoid becoming a victim of a donation pick-up scam. Here are some tips we hope you will follow:
While Goodwill does have convenient donation drop-off locations all over Greater Houston, we do understand that sometimes you have one or more items that just aren’t convenient to drop off. If you would still like to donate these items to Goodwill, we are affiliated with the for-profit company College Hunks Hauling. College Hunks is a national moving and hauling service with a presence in Houston. They are affiliated with several not-for-profit organizations, including Goodwill Houston. College Hunks will give you a free estimate and provide a tax receipt for your donated items.
